On May 14th and 15th, 2016, Sunset fans will join editors, celebrity chefs, vintners, craft beer brewers and renowned lifestyle experts in Sonoma, CA, for the 18th annual Sunset Celebration Weekend. The two-day series of culinary, wine, garden and lifestyle events will be held for the first time at Cornerstone, a wine country marketplace with food and wine, shops, gardens and event spaces, that will serve as Sunset’s beautiful new wine country location. At Celebration Weekend, Cornerstone will be transformed into an interactive showcase for the region’s most exciting lifestyle inspiration and freshest flavors, and Sunset’s Test Gardens and Outdoor Kitchen will open to the public for the first time.
“We are at a very exciting moment in Sunset’s history, and the theme of this year’s Celebration Weekend, ‘The New Sunset,’ reflects that,” said Irene Edwards, Editor-in-Chief. “We’re injecting the Sunset experience with new life, so look for fresh faces, flavors and festivities at the event.”
In June 2015, Cornerstone and Sunset announced a strategic partnership that includes hosting Sunset’s main test garden, an outdoor kitchen and on-site programming, including Celebration Weekend. Through its partnership with Cornerstone, Sunset will have a continuous presence in California wine country, one of the world’s premiere travel destinations. Sunset’s flagship headquarters is located in Oakland’s Jack London Square.
“We are thrilled to partner with Sunset to bring Celebration Weekend to the Sonoma wine country and help reimagine this iconic event to reflect the sophisticated lifestyle and taste of our world-renowned region,” said Darius Anderson, Kenwood Cornerstone CEO.
